Healthy snack anyone!?!?!



Yesterday at MOPS (mothers of preschoolers), we had a special speaker elaborate on how fun it can be to try to teach your children to eat healthier snacks...I am guilty of sometimes just letting the boys have whatever when I'm feeling rushed or just plain lazy!!! Anybody out there do the same thing?!?!!? :)
We got to use grapes, apples, raisins, crasins, cheese, peanut butter, peas, crackers and celery to try to create a funny face snack...it was fun seeing all the different personalities come out through these snack faces...the boys loved the faces I made for them and ate most of it...not the peas...who can blame em'... :)

just some pic's...


We are getting ready to paint the living room...today I was cleaning baseboards, taking stuff down off the walls, moving furniture, etc...the boys saw it as a great opportunity to build farms with their trucks, tractors, animals, and blocks in the wide open spaces...so I snapped a couple pic's as they were bringing more stuff in to the living room...right smack dab in front of the door!!! I will post pictures of before and after pictures of the spare bedroom, hallway, dining room and living room when I have my house put back together...

MOPS couple's night out...


We had our annual "MOPS couple's night out" last Saturday...everyone brought an appetizer or dessert to share at our local coffee house in town. It was lots of fun to visit with everyone without the lovely raccoons pulling at my legs...all of our children were watched at the church...I forgot to get my camera out until right before we were getting ready to leave!!!

gifts from my sweethearts...

My sweethearts were good to me on Valentines Day...Jim gave me these beautiful earrings to match the necklace he gave me for Christmas, and the raccoons gave me this itsy bitsy darling necklace...aren't they beautiful!!! A girl can never have too many jewels, right!?!?!!

my sweet beautiful raccoons...

For those of you who didn't know, I refer a lot of times to our boys as the "raccoons"...reasons being: they are naughty, messy, snoopy, dirty, eat everything, diggers, sassy, and the list goes on and on relating to raccoons...BUT...they can also be sweet baby boys that we adore and just want to squeeze their little faces and kiss their stinky feet...and yes, sometimes they do look clean and "put together"...for about 15 minutes anyway!!!

Muscle man...

For those of you who don't know who this is, I'm proud to present Mr. Muscle Man Hayden...he discovered this talent months ago one evening while he and his family were hanging out one evening and he just took off and started lifting heavy furniture, showing his amazing pecs, leg muscles, etc...
If you need a chair moved...he's your man, if you need help carrying a table...he's your man, if you need a good giggle while trying to hide your face in front of him...he's your man!!!
So next time you see Mr. Muscle Man Hayden, ask him to show his muscles...you just might be in for a real treat!!

*( please note the slightly reddened face in the following pictures...he's bound to burst something you would think...it gets so red it kind of worries me)

meet Wendy...

Isn't this funny...I have laughed several times looking at this photo. We ate at Wendy's over the weekend back in Winfield and I had Jim take my picture...he just looked at me like"are you serious"...
This is a prime example of some of the pictures my sister and I would take while together...we love taking the dumbest pictures and can laugh and laugh about them!!
So next time you're at a Wendy's, take your camera and try to find the red headed wig in the doorway of the store!!!!

Misc. pic's from our crazy home...

aahhh, if I could only purchase one of these gates for my own personal use...




craft time...makin' cards for daddy



notice Hayden's nose...all red... looks horrible...cold season is here...
who cares where you're at...you can take a nap anywhere...




i bet his arm fell asleep...?!?!


Case and Hayden were playing "Dr" and trying to mend this baby doll's big toe...Case thought he might be able to better care for the baby if he actually got in the basket himself...what a dedicated "Dr"...



kind of a tight spot...




Case came in to the kitchen with this "play kitchen" plastic wife (that's what he calls knifes) stuck in his sock like a weapon...I can't remember his reasoning behind wearing this...who knows?!?!?




i'd hate to meet him in a dark alley...!?!?!? dangerous!!!

Hello...

It's been a while since I've posted...sorry.
We've been sort of busy around here with odds and ends and etc...! Jim's grandma, Grace Lee, died last night at her home in Sapulpa, Ok...she has been battling lung cancer for a while, so while we are saddened by her passing, we are thankful that she's in heaven feeling no pain and not suffering anymore!!! Her funeral will be Monday in Oxford, so we'll be heading back this weekend.

Have a great rest of the week!!
